No, lets start with the service.
She has already decided she won’t be getting a tip from this couple.
They’ve been here before … and so has she.
Uh Oh, it’s the Curmudgeons again! Why do they always go out of their way to come to this restaurant and ask for me by name???

“Oh, so you remember us. Funny. Did you know the busboy’s been stealing your tip?”

In the days when I was traveling with my wife (allergic to yeast) and my son (allergic to dairy), we’d tell the server at first appearance, “We want to warn you that we’ll be asking a lot of pain-in-the-butt questions about ingredients.” Many of them, given the warning and the reason, were happy to go out of the way to help—sometimes even bringing empty wrappers out of the kitchen for us to read the fine print. We tried to tip appropriately for service above and beyond.
The early bird specials aren’t cheep anymore.
